How to Deep Clean the High Lifter Water Pump Disc Filter

For the Dig Filter, used from 2010 to the present:
1) Remove Filter Element from Filter Housing
2) Remove the spring and pry off the holding ring with a small screwdriver. digg-filter-element-removing-disc-holder-for-web-page.jpg
3) Remove discs and clean each one with a toothbrush. This is tedious but it is the only way to get rid of encrusted algae buildup which can seriously clog the element even though it looks clean. digg-filter-element-disassembled-for-web-page.jpg
Procedure for the Arkal Filter, used before 2010, is pretty much the same. Just insert a screwdriver and twist off the holding ring. arkal-element-disassembly.jpg
